Fuwa Fuwa Japanese Pancakes


Recently opened in Toronto, Fuwa Fuwa is a Japanese restaurant that serves light, soufflé-like pancakes. In Japanese culture, these pancakes are traditionally served after a big event, like a wedding. Fuwa Fuwa brings that experience to you every day. Also, in Japanese, “fuwa fuwa” means “fluffy fluffy” which is exactly what you get with these pancakes.

With two locations in Toronto, I went with my friend Anila to the location in Toronto’s Annex area. This particular location was small. I noticed there were about four tables and two sides on long, bar tables.

When we entered, there is a sign that says to order first and then take a seat. I didn’t notice the menu above the kitchen/cash register like most places. Instead, they have individual menus for you to take a look at. I think that’s great because then you don’t have to stand in line and hold up the line to make your decision.

Their menu consists of savoury or sweet pancakes. They also have drinks for you to order as well. Or, you can take a cup of their complimentary water nearby the register. We ended up ordering the Raspberry and Caramelized Banana Pancake. That was $13.80. It comes with the Original Pancakes, raspberry, blackberry, banana, and raspberry sauce.

After ordering, they handed us a number that we leave on our table, since they would be bringing the pancake to us. We were also given gold coated forks and napkins. Although, for some reason, our order took the longest. By the time ours arrived, everyone else that was in the restaurant had left and we were the only ones there.

When our pancakes did arrive, they were the cutest. The order came with two pancakes, one banana caramelized split in half, whipped cream, and some raspberries and a blackberry. There was also a mint leaf and powdered sugar sprinkled throughout to top it all off.

I’ve had Mildred’s Temple Kitchen pancakes before (which I still need to make my review) and these were WAY more fluffier and than Mildred’s. It was so soft, so light, and so airy. It was smooth and creamy. Normally I find Asian desserts not sweet enough, which at first bite, these pancakes didn’t seem like it’d match my sweet tooth, but as I continued, it was pretty good.

I assume the caramelized banana was the reason why our pancakes took a while to arrive. However, if it was going to take about half an hour, it’d be nice if the entire banana was caramelized. It was only caramelized on the top half of the banana with powdered sugar sprinkled on top.

The raspberries and blackberry were tart, which is probably because they’re not in-season. But I was surprised that the raspberry sauce actually did taste like raspberry. It wasn’t an artificial taste that you’d get at McDonald’s or something. I quite liked that.

Overall, I really enjoyed my first visit to Fuwa Fuwa. The portion size is a little small for $13+ but it was tasty and I would go back to try the other kinds available. Maybe even try one of the savoury ones! So what I’m trying to say, is that this place is definitely worth trying.

Whiskey away to a colder climate, please! 🍧
⠀
The summer heat is why one reason I can't stand this season but having @kekougelato makes it bearable!
⠀
Yesterday I got a scoop of Whiskey Green Tea on top of a scoop of Durian. The Whiskey Green Tea holds more whiskey than green tea but eventually the taste of the whiskey starts to fade when you continue to eat it. And the green tea provides an almost Earthy element to the combo. When I combine that with the Durian, the Durian packs a much stronger flavour than the Whiskey Green Tea but both are still good flavours to get.
⠀
Thank you again @alt.aria for your complimentary double scoop! 💙

(Free) Food will always have a pizza my heart 🍕
⠀
To celebrate the grand opening of their Oakville location, @blazepizza is giving away free pizzas today from 11 AM to 10 PM! All you have to do is download the Blaze Pizza app and go line up for the free pizza! It's that simple! You can choose from one of their Signature pizzas or Build Your Own (1-2 toppings).
⠀
I've been meaning to check out Blaze Pizza in Toronto but always forgot to and since I'm closer to Oakville, today's grand opening was the perfect way for me to try it! I got the Art Lover signature pizza (swipe ⏩), which has artichokes, ricotta, mozzarella, garlic, and dollups of tomato sauce. I also added some oregano. The pizza is thin (which I prefer), and though it doesn't look like much on the Art Lover one, it actually packs a lot of flavour.
(The other pizza pictured is the Meat Eater.)
⠀
What's your go-to pizza topping?
🍕🔥

Even in the summer heat, staying cool is popsicle 🍦
⠀
Another year of going to the Burlington Food Truck Festival! If it wasn't so hot today, definitely could have enjoyed the festival more.
⠀
1- Lime Mojito paleta from @wrestlers_to ($5)
2- Curry Fish Balls from @hk_food_station ($6 for 8)
3- Egg Waffles from @hk_food_station
4- Carne Mechada from @theareparepublic ($13)
⠀
The Lime Mojito paleta was the best thing I ate, followed by the Curry Fish Balls. The Egg Waffle was burnt a bit, so it was like a crispy Egg Waffle cracker. The Carne Mechada was my least favourite. While it was a lot of meat, it was tough and semi-dry.
⠀
What food festivals are you hitting up this summer?

It's more metal to suck balls without using a plastic straw 🤟
⠀
I love bubble tea and the amount of it I've been drinking made me realize how much more plastic waste I've been contributing. So recently I've made the switch to using metal straws.
⠀
While I might have to carry my straws with me and clean them myself, to save the Earth and reduce the effects of climate change, I'm willing to do it.
⠀
Earth is not just for our generation but for our future kids' generation and their kids. It is our job to make sure the Earth is still alive and kicking for them 🌎

I'm back! Nice to meat you all again 🍝
⠀
I've been MIA because of my phone. My almost 5-year old Sony Xperia Z3 bootlooped twice and I had to factor reset it, wiping everything, and I didn't get to back up all the internal data. Then my phone also corrupted a microSD card with new food photos I had, so I lost those too.
⠀
So I've been looking for a new phone, and now after 11 years of being with Sony-branded phones, I'm now part of #TeamPixel ✌️
